Daisuke Yokota has presented to the public an immense installation using 100,000 photographic prints coated in wax, which was exhibited in Aichi Triennial held in August 2016. Yokota’s work ‘Matter’, a work whereby photographs have been printed on rolls of paper, has become a sensation. Since 2013, ‘Matter’ has been included in numerous international exhibitions, including Unseen Photo Fair Special Exhibition ‘anima on photo’ (Amsterdam, 2013); Photo London (London, 2015); JIMEI x ARLES International Photography Festival (Xiamen, China). 

In 2014-2015, Yokota produced a small number of one-off books, collecting them under the title "Matter". To create these works, he randomly chose images, printed them and often coated them with hot wax to merge paper, ink and image, forming a single piece of "matter". The original photograph, totally transformed, vanishes beneath layers of materials. (Jean Kenta-Gauthier)

Here is one of the last Matter (waxed) published in 2016.
